Art, music, dance and food…what more could you ask for?
This year our harvest celebration is taking on a twist. In the past year, hundreds of youth from around Vancouver have come together to participate in citizenU, a city-funded program that addresses bullying, discrimination and racism. As an organization that celebrates multiculturalism, we, at The World in a Garden, got involved in citizenU as a host organization, providing training to a group of youth from David Thompson Secondary School. They are just a few of the group of citizenU youth that have spent the past few months organizing an event that will address issues of discrimination through dance, food, garden activities and art. Now, after undergoing anti-discrimination training and participating in city-wide events that celebrate diversity, this group is putting on what’s shaping up to be a fun-filled event: The Big One!
So join us this Saturday, October 20th, from 12-5pm, for a free event for people of all ages and all walks of life. The Big One will be held at our garden on W. 57th & East Blvd., and in St. Faith’s Church, just one street over on Cypress.
